Hezbollah Says Israeli Drones Crashed without Being Shot

BEIRUT (AP) — A spokesman for Lebanon's Hezbollah says two Israeli drones crashed in Beirut without the militant group firing on them.

Mohammed Afif says a small, unmanned reconnaissance drone fell on the roof of a building housing Hezbollah's media office in the Moawwad neighborhood in Dahyeh, the group's stronghold in the southern part of the Lebanese capital.

He says a second drone which appeared to have been sent by Israel to search for the first drone less than 45 minutes later exploded in the air and crashed nearby — an explosion heard by residents of the area.

Afif told The Associated Press Sunday: "We did not shoot down or explode any of the drones."

He says Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah will give the "appropriate" response in a televised appearance later Sunday.
